The foundations of Abby’s career lie in her interests of sustainable design and the impacts of environmental and social geographies in the landscape. Her interest in geography allowed her to pursue and obtain a minor in the field during her time at Penn State. This fed her curiosities on how people relate to the landscape and use outdoor spaces, as well as the social and cultural aspects that societies have on the land at all scales. Both her degree and minor were complimented by studying abroad and exploring places in North America, Europe, and Africa. Before working at STUDIO39, Abby gained experience in community design and high-end residential design in the Chesapeake Bay region.
Abby loves to travel and expand her growing photography skills and library, as well as her knowledge of world landscapes. She hopes to set foot on each of the world’s continents.
